FTL 273 & CTD273

After the week almost coming to a close I was finally able to put together a card for this weeks Clean and Simple sketch. 

Here are a couple of variations I made for it…

The first card I needed some colour inspiration and came across Color Throwdown, haven't done this challenge before and thought it would be a good way to start the new year!! And the second card I realized I had bought the purple paper a couple months ago and hadn't opened it yet…a good excuse for both creations I think!! 

Day 2 of a card a day in January! Thanks so much for stopping by

Card one:
Paper: white, basic grey, smokey slate
Ink: basic grey, tempting turquoise
Stamps: hot hot hot, heart to heart
Accessories: heart to heart #1 die, SU washi tape
Card two:
Paper: elegant eggplant, so saffron
Ink: elegant eggplant
Stamps: morning meadow
Accessories: chevron stencil, gold shimmer mist spray, SU washi tape

Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year everyone!!! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!!

So for the past couple of years in January I've done a card a day series…just to keep me busy doing something after the hussel and bussel of the holiday season! 

I thought I would start the new year off right by doing a card challenge from Retro Sketches! For this card I pulled out some SU washi tape, then drew the cut lines on the back of the paper to give it the sunbeam shape (don't have a fancy die for that…yet…). And if I'm being honest it did take me a while to to put the puzzle pieces back together again! :) 

I love the sunny nature of the card! Was a fun one to make!!!

Hope you all have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
